At the University of Manchester, UK, we have over 10 years experience in
running a range of online courses in computational biology.  These
courses are designed to enable biologists and computer scientists to
update their skills, while remaining in the workplace.  They are also
very suitable for home study, helping you to keep in touch with a
research environment while taking a career break.  The courses may be 
taken as individual modules, or you could work towards a qualification in :

Computational Bioinformatics
or
Computational Systems Biology

The courses beginning on 1 March 2010 include:

Introduction to software development in Java
